PHISH U.S. Bank Arena, Cincinnati, OH. November 21, 22, 2009

What an awesome weekend at the US Bank Arena! Phish played on Friday 11/20 and Saturday 11/21/2009. I was very impressed Friday night by the new songs, Time Turns Elastic was tight and epic, and Light was very cool coming out of Tweezer. Slave and YEM to close 2nd set - solid! My highlight for Saturday was Rock & Roll > Ghost. About 30 seconds befor Phish came on for 2nd set Colleen asked me what I wanted to hear, I said "Rock & Roll" not expecting to hear it right of the bat. I've posted a few photos from the Saturday night show. There are plenty of video's on YouTube from both nights. I've embedded a clip of Fluffhead from Friday that is pretty decent quality, the camera is steady and the clip gives a nice sample of the amazing light show and the raging crowd. Setlist and more photos here.
Enquirer review of Saturday here.

Rollinsville, CO - fake tilt shift

Here is shot of Rollinsville, CO with a quick tilt shift effect, rather than using a tilt shift lens. This effect creates a miniature look to the image. Although I didn't follow this technique exactly, here is a link to a step by step "how to" Tilt Shift Photoshop via Dr. C.

Mid Point Music Festival

MPMF was a great time as usual. Below are some photos of our current favorite band from Ypsilanti, Michigan Lightning Love . We were turned on to L.L. by our favorite local band Bad Veins, and the word is that both bands will play Northside Tavern on NYE 10'. We also witnessed an awesome set from Chicago via Columbus band Loyal Divide at the CAC.

Too Cool

So the wife and I were lucky enough to borrow a convertible BMW for a spring road trip up Rt. 52, and of course I had to document.

Home Sweet Home

This is a photo I snapped a few months ago. Click the photo to view larger for some hilarious details, like the cable running past the mailbox and up to the antenna above the front door.

Another sweet home along Route 52 near Aberdeen Ohio. Yes, this IS the front door and please, no smoking.

Self Portrait/ Bad Veins/ In Flight/ Red River George/ Of Montreal

I'm getting a little behind with posts lately so I crammed everything into one, there's quite a bit of, nature/fire, flying, I hope you enjoy. Of Montreal played the Madison Theater last Thursday night. The place was packed, especially on the floor, so I couldn't get up front and therefor all of my shots are very wide. The music was pretty good, they sounded solid, the video animation and stage antics were very cool.

I camped a couple nights at the Red River Gorge.
The first photo is a nice spot to stargaze at night, hence a big rock thats behind me, not in the photo, called stargazers rock, but it's also a sweet spot to watch the fog roll out of the gorge. The second photo is what the fire does when Jason continuously scratches the logs in the campfire. It was like a caveman laser show.


This is a photo flying over the Ohio river by Kellogg Ave. The jet plane was very small, only a six seater. If you look really close you can see River Downs race track in the front corner of the right window.


Doc C and I went to see our FAVORITE local band Bad Veins at the Mad Hatter last month. They killed it like always and I'm bummed I won't be able to see them again for quite a while, but the good news is they signed to Dangerbird Records and I'll hopefully be getting a vinyl record of their first full length album July 21 or hereafter. Listen to some of the tunes here.


a portrait of me?
